Bit9 + Carbon Black Free Webinar--Unrivaled Protection Centralized Control: Defending Linux Servers against Advanced Threats

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, is sponsoring the free webinar "Unrivaled Protection Centralized Control: Defending Linux Servers against Advanced Threats" on Wednesday, August 27, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

As Linux continues to play an increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60 percent of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

While Linux contains several features that can provide enhanced system security and integrity, most organizations either do not implement or only occasionally ensure proper enforcement. Why? Because they lack real-time visibility into their environments and the ability to centrally enforcing policy across their entire system.

Join Bit9's Paul Riegle and Linux Journal's Bill Childers for a discussion covering:

  • The rise of Linux advanced attacks—why signature-based security measures are ineffective against advanced attacks
  • A brief overview of Bit9 + Carbon Black's application control and ETDR solutions
  • How Bit9 + Carbon Black can help organizations centrally manage and enforce security policies across large Linux environments

Register for this webinar to gain a new, research-based approach to endpoint security.
